The former GB News host recently revealed she will ‘step back’ from her presenting role with the channel due to ill health and a cancer scare earlier this summer.
The TV personality, who co-presented The Great British Breakfast since July 2021 with Simon McCoy – told how a benign ear tumour has caused her ‘severe tinnitus’ and has left her unable to work.

In an emotional statement posted to her Instagram last week, Kirsty said the early 3am starts for her show ‘compounded by sleep deprivation’ had exacerbated her symptoms.
She penned: ‘During the summer I discovered I have a tumour in the inner canal of my right ear. Thankfully, it’s benign and not hugely detrimental to my normal life.
‘However, the tumour has caused severe tinnitus which makes it very difficult to sleep.
‘Sadly my 3am starts at GB News, compounded by sleep deprivation, are exacerbating my symptoms.

‘I’ve taken the difficult decision to take a step back from my role on the Great British Breakfast while I focus on my health. GB News has been incredibly supportive of me and I look forward to returning to the channel as soon as I can.
‘As I adjust to managing my condition, I will carry on with my less disruptive work commitments and continue maintaining a healthy lifestyle and training so I can get back to my normal routine quickly. Kirsty x’
Tinnitus is the name for hearing noises that are not caused by sounds coming from the outside world.
It’s not always clear what causes tinnitus, but it is often linked to some form of hearing loss, Ménière’s disease, conditions such as diabetes, thyroid disorders, multiple sclerosis and anxiety or depression.
The condition, which can cause ringing or buzzing in the ears as loud as a jet engine, affects 7.1million Britons.
Tinnitus most affects people aged 55 to 75.
Kirsty began her career at Sky Sports News in 1998 and hosted Kirsty’s Home Videos, RI:SE and Simply the Best before returning to Sky Sports News from 2011–2018.
She also has a Smooth Radio show on Saturdays from 1pm to 4pm. It has not been suggested she will step back from this role.

What is tinnitus?
Tinnitus is when you experience ringing or other noises in one or both of your ears.
The noise you hear when you have tinnitus isn’t caused by an external sound, and other people usually can’t hear it.
Tinnitus is a common problem. It affects about 15 per cent to 20 per cent of people, and is especially common in older adults.
Tinnitus is usually caused by an underlying condition, such as age-related hearing loss, an ear injury or a problem with the circulatory system.
For many people, tinnitus improves with treatment of the underlying cause or with other treatments that reduce or mask the noise, making tinnitus less noticeable.
In many people, tinnitus is caused by one of the following:
- Ear infection or ear canal blockage.
